(Ecclesiastes 1: 2; 2: 21-23     Colossians 3: 1-5, 9-11,     Luke 12: 13-21)

All that we are and all that we have come from the goodness of the Lord. In unique ways, each one of us is so special to the total wellbeing of our existence. No one is superior nor inferior to the other; each of us is just necessary and not sufficient to the wellbeing of the whole. If we were to respect each part of the whole, there would be so much peace in our lives, for justice would be the motivating factor of every deed done by us. Unfortunately, we see ourselves as autonomous and self-sufficient even to the point of deleting the source of life, God, from the equation of our lives. Such a life has never produced, and will never ever produce any meaningful results, yet that is the very life many of us have opted. Albert Einstein would describe such a life as an act of insanity.

The created beauty is a pedestal for us to launch into the immensity of the glory of God about which we must declare. The created beauty is a means and not an end in itself, as most of us hold it to be so. If we adore and admire the beauty of creation, we must move on to give the greatest adoration and admiration to the one who brought forth creation, in the first place. A simple reminder to each person about that fact could lead most, if not all, of us to change our attitude from a life of self-centeredness to a life of total surrender to the will of God in a bid to be instruments to bring the goodness of God within us to the rest of the world. By this means, we shall set the world ablaze on the fire of love that breeds peace and justice. A little move towards a life of genuine stewardship of time, talent, and treasure, in a matrix of trust, would be all that we need to use what God has endowed us as a means to serve God and our neighbors as an appreciation of what we have been offered by God, which is a privilege and not a right.
